Why Do We Make It Complicated?

One of the things that I am wondering about at the present, is what to write about? What direction am I to go?

What do I have to offer in the Lord, what can I share that will exhort and encourage others? To help them in this walk called life.

How do we uncomplicate, what has been made complicated, especially when it comes to our relationship with our Father, with the Lord, we are to have a childlike faith, to trust in the Creator of heaven and earth!

That we are to walk daily in fellowship and communion with our Father, with the Lord, with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit , that we live in Christ and he lives and abides in us now, the Kingdom of God within.

I cannot live in yesterday, nor walk in tomorrow, but I can walk daily with the Lord, share his love, his peace and rest, that He gives.

We can abide in him, to be changed day by day, living a real life, in a real world, that our lives will reflect that relationship by the life we live, for our lives speak louder than our words.

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned, as I went through chemo and radiation, through surgeries, through a divorce, not by choice, is that the Father, the Lord, the Holy Spirit comforted me, gave me the strength to persevere, to not give up, to hold on to the hope, even when it appeared to be but a thread and to see the Lord bring me through it all to become stronger than I ever was before!

Yes I had my days, yes there were days I wanted to quit, to die, to give up but there was always that tug, that presence, that peace of the Lord, that pulled me through to eventually become a pen in his hand. To write from the heart, out of a relationship, out of what has become real in me.

One of the greatest legacies that I have is my children and grandchildren, they have seen their father and grandfather become stronger and take what could have destroyed him,to press in even more to the Lord and the call to write from the heart.

Hopefully to give hope to others as they are on this path called life, for there is nothing we go through, that he will not carry us through if we will allow him to.

As we walked day by day with the Father, as we are in a attitude of worship, of trust, of faith, we will look back and see that He was with us and that He uses what we have gone through to touch the lives of others.

For we share our experience, not out the theory, but out of what has been made real in our lives!

May our lives, our gifts, our talents, that he has given us reflect that reality. May it bring hope to others, to see it reflected in our lives. That it will cause others to want to know more about that peace, that rest, that comfort that we have.

Till later,

    It IS complicated, isn't it? But you have cut through all that to bring peace into your own life and now share it with us! Just prayed for your direction in writing–you certainly have many places in which to write from the experiences you've had.
